When I picked this book on random, I was prepared to be disappointed. however, it was way different than I expected. I loved this urban fantasy world setting. It has a beautiful blend of human’s and vampires.
Cat is a half vampire with strength much greater than humans. She hunts vampires in the night. She has hated them from the age of sixteen when she learnt the background behind her birth. She thinks all vampires are evil, demonic creatures that can’t be trusted and that they all must be killed.
One weekend when she goes to hunt, she encounters a vampire named Bones. Bones is a vampire bounty hunter. Things go south from there as she is knocked out and chained to a cave with said vampire asking her “who she works for”. After listening to her story, he offers her a deal to work with him. They form a forced unlikely alliance. As Cat and Bones hunt, they encounter a much bigger challenge. Will cat ever be able to let go of her vampire prejudice, and see that there are good and bad in both vampires and humans? or will she let her prejudice cost many lives maybe her own?
Cat is a sexy, honest and strong-ass woman. Bones is all you wish in any supernatural hero. He is yummmmm. These two had some great banter back and forth. Narration was enthralling and captivating from the very first page. It had a great blend of supernatural and urban fantasy world building. Cat and Bones had an awesome dynamics, with lots of fun and sexual tension that complemented each other perfectly.
The action, suspense, banter, humor, passion, romance, sexual tension and some amount of tragedy all these elements turned out to be the perfect combination to keep me hooked from the very first page until the very last one. If you are a paranormal urban fantasy lover, then do pick this up and enjoy the thrill ride.
